Jane Ogren is a native Pennsylvanian. She has lived the last forty years in the Pittsburgh area. Jane graduated from Edinboro University of PA with a B.S. in art education and an M.Ed from Indiana University of PA. She taught art in several Pittsburgh suburban schools. Her teaching assignments have put her in the drawing, ceramics, jewelry, fiber, and sculpture studios. Jane also taught Advanced Placement Art.
In her studio Jane is now concentrating on her fiber art, working in both 2 and 3 dimensions. Her work has been shown locally, nationally and internationally. Locally, Jane’s artwork has been exhibited at the Andy Warhol Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, SAMA at Ligonier Valley, the Erie Museum of Art, the State Museum of Pennsylvania, the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, the Lancaster Museum of Art, the Hoyt Institute of Fine Art, the Society of Contemporary Craft and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Her artwork has also been included in gallery exhibits in Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Internationally her fiber art has been shown in both Sydney and Brisbane, Australia, Birmingham, England, Kherson, Ukraine, and in Xalapa, Mexico. Jane’s artwork has been recently featured in the book 1000 Artisan Textiles and her artwork will soon be published in the book PatternBase.
She has been working with traditional and contemporary fiber materials for many years as a professional artist. Jane enjoys the evolution of her work as she problem solves through the entire process deciding on color, texture and design. Remembering where she has been and then looking forward to exploring new ideas keeps her work ever evolving.
Jane continues to enjoy creating her art work and volunteering in the art community. She is a member and a past president of the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh, a member and past Board member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (now a Board member Emeritus), and previously was the Northeast representative for the Surface Design Association. Jane is also an honorary member of the World Textile Art Organization.
